Junior League of New Orleans

Freret 5K

Save the Date for Saturday, October 17, 2015

The Junior League of New Orleans thanks all those that participated in our Freret 5K on October 18, 2014. It was a fabulous event, bringing together local businesses, Freret neighbors, runners, and walkers to promote family fitness and wellness in our community.  Since 1960, JLNO has been a member of the Freret community with its Bloomin’ Deals Thrift Store and believes this exciting event further encourages the health and wellness of the City’s citizens and businesses.  

Registration fees from over 410 participants combined with the generosity of our sponsors, donors, and volunteers to raise over $21,000 for JLNO's community projects.  We were also able to sponsor 30 youth runners.

This money combines with 50,000 hours of direct volunteer service by JLNO members to impact the lives of those in Metropolitan New Orleans.

Participation in the 5K or fun run includes:

  • a race t-shirt
  • post-race refreshments
  • entertainment
  • awards presentation
  • children’s activities
